Elena Senatore comes from Caserta, in the south of Italy, and she moved to Pisa in 2015 where she obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science and Production at Department of Veterinary Science of University of Pisa. The Bachelor’s degree thesis dealt with feed composition and formulation and was carried out in collaboration with “Mangimi Liverini”, an important feed company in the South of Italy. Elena completed her education in animal science achieving her Master’s Degree in Animal Production with a thesis about the evaluation of dairy cattle welfare using an integrated checklist named ClassyFarm approved by the National Health Ministry. This method was applied to carry out a survey about the current situation of the welfare of dairy cows in a representative sample of dairy farm in TuscanyCurrently, Elena is PhD student at the Department of Agriculture, Food and Environment of the University of Pisa, carrying out a project aimed to investigate different tools and technologies to monitor the enteric methane emissions of dairy ruminants, such as handle laser detector introduced by Professor Chagunda in 2009 or GreenFeed system produced by C-lock company.
